Thread: TBS CAIPIRINHA - small flying wing

    TBS CAIPIRINHA - small flying wing



    http://www.team-blacksheep.com/caipirinha

    Finally, the new wing from TBS. Bittersweet, precise and easy to build, just like the cocktail it has been named after. Using airfoils from Ritewing and manufactured by Windrider in cooperation with TBS!

    Designed to change the fixed wing FPV experience - again. Its small size and light weight makes it very forgiving for beginners. Its versatility will please professionals, with 10km (and return) flying range, a whopping 35mins flight time and a speed range in the low 20's to high 60 km/h. The lower speed compared to its big brother ZII is barely noticeable as you fly closer to the ground, between trees or buildings and into cracks or crevases. This is a take-anywhere, fly-anytime type of plane which doesn't cause a stir in local parks and is absolutely safe to fly.



    Built from indestructible molded EPP, it is the smallest wing to date capable of carrying a full-feature HD camera such as the GoPro while keeping the all-up-weight in the 600g (21oz) range! With the slick, low drag design it flies smooth and efficient. The supplied accessories are of exceptional quality and give you the freedom to use the plane with any FPV equipment, power train and battery system, while reducing the build time to a minimum when using it with TBS- or TBS-compatible equipment.



    Features

    • Small, lightweight, fly anywhere design
    • Virtually indestructible EPP material
    • Pre-cut camera, battery, R/C receiver and video transmitter slots

    • Negative foam pieces allows you to build the wing according to your rules, not ours

    EPP really is the only way to go, molded is even better. Love my Windriders, good looking wing you got there.
